Thanksgiving in a Skillet

I think I’ve mentioned that we’re going to be in Chicago for Thanksgiving.  Well… at Union Station, anyway, changing trains with a three hour layover on our cross-country trek from San Francisco back to Philadelphia.  Our friends Kate and Lori are going to meet us there for dinner.  It’s going to be a great time.

But celebrating Thanksgiving in Chicago means no Thanksgiving dinner at home.  No leftover turkey, no turkey soup, no turkey sandwiches on squishy white bread…

Enter Thanksgiving in a skillet.  It’s the perfect combination for those who want the taste of Thanksgiving without the hassle.

  • 1 pkg Ground Turkey
  • 1 medium Onion, diced
  • 1/2 stick butter
  • 1 or 2 sweet potatoes, diced
  • 1 pkg Stuffing Mix
  • 3 cups broth

Melt butter in skillet with cover. Add onion and ground turkey. Cook until onions are soft and turkey is cooked through.

Add diced yams, broth and stuffing seasoning packet. Cover and bring to a boil. Simmer until yams are cooked through.

Add stuffing. Turn off heat. leave skillet covered for 3-4 minutes. uncover and stir.

It’s a great nosh.  Ans makes enough for those all-important leftovers!

    Ohh, this looks yummy. I just with there was a good wheat-free stuffing mix....or any wheat-free stuffing mix...out there. We can't wait to see you both. I've got to start researching where we can catch dinner, even if the train is running late.

    I am going to email my friend Ruth right now... She works for a gluten-free bakery. She may have some ideas. Can't wait to see you two, too! :)

    Hey, you've been holding out! A friend who works for a gluten free bakery??? Where is it? What do they bake? Do they ship?

    It's called Against the Grain Gourmet in Brattleboro, VT. Alas, they don't do online sales and are currently only distributed on the east coast. http://www.againstthegraingourmet.com/

    I just happened to remember to check this thread for a response. Is there any way to set it up so that when someone posts on your site, any response they get gets automatically forwarded to their email? Just a thought.
